Can you read for 7 days in a row?

Daily reading has many benefits, including improving reading comprehension skills, creativity, critical thinking, and more. To encourage this habit, as part of National Reading Month, we're challenging all FWPS scholars to the Reading Marathon Challenge!

How to Participate in 3 Easy Steps:

  1. Scholars must read for 7 days in a row (a week) during the month of March for a set length of time based on grade level:
    • Grades PreK-5: 30 minutes
    • Grades 6-8: 45 minutes
    • Grades 9-12: 1 hour

  2. Track your progress in the Reading Marathon Challenge reading log.

  3. Turn in your completed reading log to your school's office by Friday, April 14, 2023 for a prize.

Prizes will be distributed by schools. More information to come.

If you are unable to download and print the reading log, you can pick up a reading log from the main office at your school.

STEM Exploration Night Shuttle Bus Routes

As with previous in person STEM Exploration Nights, FWPS is continuing its commitment to ensuring the fun STEM event is accessible for families by providing dedicated shuttle buses from areas across our district. Parking is limited at Federal Way High School, and bus shuttles are a great option to get to the event.

Find the route list here:

All scholars are welcome to ride the shuttle with a parent or guardian. High school scholars can ride the shuttle by themselves by presenting a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian upon boarding the bus.
